Obama wins South Carolina


Democrat presidential, Barack Obama candidate is expected to win the primary in South Carolina with a record turnout of more than 300,000.

A Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll showed Obama with 41 percent of the votes and rivals Hilary Clinton and John Edwards with 26 percent and 19 percent respectively.

The win is required to give Obama a realistic chance of victory as the candidates prepare for "Super Tuesday" on February 5th.

  I laughed so hard when  
CNN announced the winner as soon as the polls closed. It was great.

  From his victory speech  
“It’s the kind of partisanship where you’re not even allowed to say that a Republican had an idea — even if it’s one you never agreed with. That kind of politics is bad for our party, it’s bad for our country.”

That's one of the things I like about this guy. America needs to get past the politics of division and build unity.

Hillary's concession speech spoke about moving on to the next election in Tennessee, brushing off South Carolina. Then, she made a statement about a statesman and a politician differing in that one cares about the next election while the other cares about the next generation. Considering the first statement, which is to be believed?
I keep waiting for her to show her soft side, and regurgitate into the mouth of one of the young.

  When I was out and about  
I noticed an awful lot of SC's African Americans out voting. Ofcourse SC is close to 30% African American and 9 % Hispanic. The rest of SC (60%) voted in the republican primary. Come time for the general election it won't matter who is the democratic candidate in SC, b/c it will always vote republican.
